With the revelation in the prequels that the Stormtroopers were, at least originally, all clones of Jango Fett, there is only one conclusion we can come to: they should have cloned somebody who could shoot worth a damn. Hopefully these custom-made Stormtrooper targets will help the poor schmucks improve their accuracy.
